Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is the real McCoy. Barrel aged and crammed with coffee, none other will stand in it’s way. Sought out for being delicious, it is notoriously difficult to track down. If you can find one, shoot to kill, because it is definitely wanted... dead or alive.

Finally got to try the white whale. Pours like syrup, smells like syrup. Seems like it should be just a perfect beer, but I don't think TG does coffee as well as the other best breweries. I definitely got some green pepper.

Had this on tap at the 12-15-18 release in Decorah. The aroma on this was amazing and was a step above the flavor. This beer is a very good mix of coffee, barrel and maple but just shy of a perfect rating. Maybe because the expectations are so crazy high?

Barrel aged brownie batter, coffee compliments the maple perfectly. Lives up to the hype

Great beer, but didn't seem to be worth the hype. For a $1000 secondary market, should have been perfect, and just failed to miss the mark for me. The nose was incredible, but the taste almost had a metallic tinge to it.

Batch one, 2013, Enjoyed at GAB bottle share
Pitch black thick oily rich, thick legs, touch of head

Nose loads of maple thick dark chocolate, cocoa, hint Smokey, roasty coffee, coffee syrup, nice barrel vanilla and thick maple, vanilla ice cream

Taste velvety creamy smooth thick dark chocolate, cocoa, big maple syrup, vanilla ice cream, touch of Smokey, roasty coffee, lurker nutty coffee and hint of bitterness, mild toasted oak vanilla barrel, no booze, earthy coffee late, thick dark chocolate

Mouth is thick rich creamy, velvety smooth, no alcohol

Overall incredible! Easily one of best beers I've ever had.
